Here's a photo of all the barrels, just for fun. This weekends task is moving a *full* 60 gallon barrel from one side of the room to the other. Then, making a wooden frame to stack barrels - recently obtained two more.

Fermentation updates - Faro seems to be done fermenting, the lambic in the barrel has slowed. As temperatures warm for summer, I predict slightly more activity.

Also going to put in a "vinnie nail" this weekend for easier sampling.

1 year, 10 months to go.

I was wondering that myself. Its not like you have a forklift you can cradle the barrel with in your basement. I am thinking a chain hoist some straps, and a frame built to hang the barrel from, with wheels of course.

Wow, I spend a lot of time just staring at my carboys and bottles. I'd probably end up sleeping down there. Soon, I hope to have some barrels. I've got the room and the supportive spouse, I just need to find some wine barrels and figure out how I'm going to brew 60 gallons.

With regard to moving barrels, my good friend is one of the worlds top powerlifters and is coming to help. Another friend is about his size and between the two of them it should get done. Ill post a photo if he they get it in the air.
Barrel fill takes a full day, see above photos.
I've almost slept down there... think I'm gonna put in a couch soon for these warm summers - good place to cool off.
Re: the barrels I have a grest source and a supportive spouse.

With a couple straps they should be good to lift the barrel full. It's only like 500lbs so with two dudes it's entirely doable. I was thinking of a way to do it solo.

About to fill a barrel next weekend. How many gallons of head space did you allow for blow off?


We are thinking we will put 45 gallons in, and then top off after the majority of ferm slows.
